JAMMU: Jammu and Kashmir Director General of Police Dilbag Singh on Thursday said around 85 militant modules involving grenades, civilian killings and other militant activities were busted in Jammu and Kashmir last year.
“Attempts (by militants) to create disturbance by planting IED (improvised explosive devices) in Jammu have been foiled recently. A huge quantity of arms, explosives, grenade and other material have been seized,” Singh said during a cricket tournament here.
Accusing Pakistan of making repeated attempts to create disturbances in Jammu, Singh said, the police and other security forces were continuously monitoring and foiling their “evil designs”.
Thanking the people for their support, he said the Jammu and Kashmir Police proved to be successful in its mission because of them, especially the youth of Jammu and Kashmir.
“It is time the young generation comes forward to spread the message of peace and love,” he said. Referring to the killing of a civilian in Kulgam, the DGP said it is shameful on the part of the militants and their masters.
Calling the participating teams in the cricket tournament as ambassadors of peace, Singh said sports is a tool to promote peace, tolerance, and understanding and it brings people together cutting across cultures and regions.
Sports can be utilised to further strengthen social cohesion. It also promotes equality and serves as a platform to promote values of diversity, he said.
